having a 3.08 rear gear sucks royaly in my 97 4.3 with fullsize 5 speed.
However having different first and second gears is crazy.
I start to spin first at 3500 unless its 80+ degrees out
Will spin going into second third and will chirp fourth short shifted. as third takes me up to limiter.

It's pretty fun and suprisingly fast.
sucks from a roll through, unless in first or second gear.

Old thread but...

sorta got beat by a Porsche Cayanne Turbo in the TBSS last night. He only gunned it real quick and I hit mine as soon as possible but he pulled pretty quick from me.

I've got a 4.3 ZR2 that I love to tick people off with. So one day I pulled up to a red light beside a twin turbo supra. Genius me! He had the tops off and no front bumper to show off his brand new intercooler and turbo pipes. The two guys in the car were jamming out to some devil music so as soon as the light turned green I roasted the tires and beat him to the next light. He just looked over at me and I waved and he was cool about it since I told him it was a nice car. At that light I told him to cut it loose and he did. When I saw him again he was already done getting gas at the next gas station!! haha

I have a mild build v8 s10. I pulled up to a light a couple weeks ago and a new challenger pulled up next to me. The guy slapped his hand at the top of his steering wheel and did some F&F look over at me. I didn't know exactly what would happen (truck has only been together for a short time). At first, I didn't think he would do anything. When the light hit green, I heard his tires rip. I quickly dumped mine into 1st and launched. I pulled about 3 cars on him when my fuel lines ran dry and started to bog out. Turned in to the next available spot to get fuel pressure back up (brand new pump that is a piece of sh!t and getting sent back) and the charger pulled in next to me. He was asking what the hell I have in it, and I then find out his has a 6cyl.:doh:

LOL at some people in this thread...."my 2.2 is pretty fast".....


anyways.....my 02 sonoma has the 4.3, auto, and only mods are tune, flows, throttle blade mod, and intake. And its still slow as shit. Only runs mid 15's in the 1/4....


But I do have another car in my garage....



03 Cobra with a 5.0 stroker, ported stock eaton blower with 16lbs of boost, and a few other mods. 552/525 on the dyno at the wheels.....and this one runs 10's in the 1/4, so no wonder I think my truck is slow....

Any Diesel lovers out there,

Nothing like pulling up beside a nice car in a F 350, you have to be on the left of em of course, then spanking them off a light, with a hot setup on a turbo diesel, the black smoke plume blasting out in front of them is awesome

I just had a Cummings experience a few weeks back. I was waiting at a red light. It goes from two lanes to one right after the intersection. Everyone always races to get ahead of the other person there. This lifted Dodge with a Cummins sticker on the back pulls up beside me in the lane that is ending. I thought this won't end very well. 2.8 4 speed manual trans in my s-10. I figured I am gonna loose anyway I might as well see what happens just to see how I do. I was pretty sure he was gonna rip it at the light and he did. He actually took off right before the green light like he thought I had a chance of beating him. Hell he could have gave me a head start. I purposely didn't get too hard on it from the get go. I figured theres no use in beating up my old truck when I know I am gonna lose. Once I got going I punched it but he was already 4 cars lengths ahead. He eventually turned off and was in the process of turning when I performed my ricer fly by with train horns for added effect.

I got owned from a red light once by a lime green Civic. Later found out it had a built motor, 66mm turbo, and alky injection. He got me by about 4 lengths and I started in 2nd with an auto so it bogged a little. Happened right in front of my high school with most of my friends watching. Havnt lost a race since though...... although i only race people that i actually fell i will destroy. lol

i got up next to s silverado, debadged, and dropped a bit, i was like oh man, srock rims...2WD, i think he's a v-6 also...i wigh less, i can take him....**** THAT! never race somebody you pull up next to with the stereo blaring, that debadged 454 humps it just a little harder than my 4.3, but i've smashed my fair share of turbo civics and CRX's.

i used to drive a 1991 2.8 5 spd ext. cab, i got my ass handed to me alot. but I also had a few surprising wins. I didn't think my truck was faster than a CRX with a body kit and a wing.......guess all that crap created more drag lol.....and i bet a corolla.........but those aren't the surprising ones lol

About a week ago i raced my friend in his dads 98 chevy pickup with his 350. I was confused as hell when my v6 blazer kept up with him. i spun and let him get ahead (damp road and shitty tires), but after that he never pulled away. just stayed a car length ahead.
